A white housewife and mother of five children, Viola Liuzzo felt called to action by the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and left her Michigan home to work in Alabama with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1965. While serving as a volunteer during the historic Selma to Montgomery marches, Liuzzo was shot dead by members of the Ku Klux Klan. The film is an historical account of her life presented in a montage of archival footage, narrated by the actress Stockard Channing and laced with extensive interviews of Liuzzo's family members and contemporaries.


Home of the Brave was written, directed, and co-produced by Paola di Florio. The 75-minute film was released by Emerging Pictures in late 2004.
